Referee: Mattie Maher

St Gabriels played the first round of the Ryan cup on Tuesday evening in East Lane against a tough Fr Murphy's side. Gabriels started the game well with early points from David Nolan, Neil Rodgers, Ciaran Cunningham and David O Gorman to name just a few. Murphys stayed in contention and landed a number of long range frees. A further point from corner forward Barry Devine and a well worked point from Murphys left the sides with one point between them at the interval.

Murphys started the second half with great form and put massive pressure on the Gabriels defence. Tomas Lally and clubmate Darragh Skehill worked well throughout. Gabriels fought back well and with some fine long range points from wing back Michael Coady and midfielder David Nolan which left the sides within a puck of a ball again. Murphys punished the home side with some long range points and a number of frees inside the opening 15 mins. A long range effort from Neil Rodgers found the back of the net around the 40 minute mark. Further points from Rodgers, David Nolan and hard work from Kevin Coen and Eoin Touhy saw Gabriels push into a 7 point lead mid way thorough the final quarter. Murphys bounced back with a well worked point from play leaving the sides with 6 points between them with 4 mins on the clock. A well won ball from a puck out saw Alan Griffin run through the heart of the defence and the ball somehow found the back of the Gabriels net. With less than a minute in the clock, Murphys struck another goal, this time a long ball dropped around the square saw the Murphys men rattle the Gabriels net for the 3rd time of the evening.

The game ended all square and the reply will be played next week which is yet to be fixed in the coming days.
